What's the deal with that? Don't you understand that your technique is allready giving you so much of an advantage over the intended power curve that you don't need to scum?
Depends; sometimes I just want to play something specific, no matter how obscenely overkill the combo may be. Sometimes it's a race/class/dungeon/badge/whatever combo that's particularly tricky. Most of the time I'm not scumming for something specific, but rather anything
that gives me a good edge. A level 1 JJ find isn't as good as a level 1 GG find, but I'll certainly take it.
(Oh, and if you want to do anything purist, just take a gnome bloodmage and pay minimal attention. It'll take you more effort to chase badges than beating dungeons dacfrsure)
I prefer Warlord, but Bloodmage should work just
find, and also shouldn't have trouble on VHoS (where a purist Warlord will probably choke).
